For years BTS have said their dream is to be Grammy-nominated. And they've finally achieved it.
Since their debut in 2013, the seven-member band has been at the forefront of South Korean pop music, recently notching their first ever Number One hit single on the Billboard charts in the United States with "Dynamite".
The first-time nominees shared on Twitter their livestreamed reactions to their 2021 Grammy nomination in the best pop group performance field.
In the video, four of the seven members - the leader RM, singers Jimin, Jungkook and V - spring up from a sofa, clap and cheer in joy as the nomination for their hit single "Dynamite" is announced.
"Above all, ARMYs are the ones who helped this miracle come true - of us getting the Grammy nomination. Thank you always," BTS said on Twitter, addressing the group's fan base, known as ARMY, an acronym for Adorable Representative MC for Youth.
Hashtags "GrammyNominatedBTS” and "Heading to Grammy” were trending on South Korean Twitter.
Thousands of fans retweeted the reaction clips and congratulated the group on their accomplishments: "So proud of you guys," a Twitter user commented.
"Congratulations! You made it! You deserve it!" wrote another user.
The nod comes after BTS released their latest album "BE" last week.
BTS will perform live in South Korea on Dec. 31, their first concert since cancelling a world tour in April because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Tushar is an Australian songwriter and record producer of Indian-origin, who co-wrote "Home" for the K-pop super band BTS, and also worked with words to create Demi Lovato's "Sober" and Chris Brown's "Zero". He has also worked with the K-pop stars Blackpink, besides deejay Steve Aoki and Backstreet Boys.
Beyonce added four Grammys to her collection, bringing her lifetime total to 32 and surpassing the tally of late classical conductor Georg Solti.
South Korean boy band BTS have become the first musicians from their country to top the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. Their latest song, Dynamite, has scaled the number one position on the popular music ranking chart on debut.

Daniels, who has performed close to 600 small gigs with his guitar, was never interested in linear storytelling, preferring instead to use his songs to wrap stories around.
She wrote, "Picture perfect... sending so much love to the newlyweds on their special day!" Priyanka welcomed her cousin's husband Raghav to the Chopra family, saying, "hope you’re ready to dive into the crazy with us."
"How do you think that I find love in my life," she asked, prompting Miles to respond with, "Pick a person that looks kind." The most adorable part came right after, when Miles put his tiny hand on Rodrigo's knee before telling her, "I really hope you find love."
